MAT-SU HEALTH FOUNDATION SEEKING INPUT FOR FUTURE COMMUNITY HEALTH CAMPUS
Wasilla, Alaska – The Mat-Su Health Foundation (MSHF) is working to develop a vibrant, mixed-use Community Health Campus on land it owns surrounding Mat-Su Regional Medical Center and is seeking input from the public about the project. Mat-Su residents are encouraged to complete the Mat-Su Community Health Campus Project Survey now through March 31, 2021, at matsucommunityhealthcampus.org.
MSHF contracted with HDR, Inc. to create a master plan that will help provide a long-range vision for how the community health campus can best be designed to serve as a center for health and wellness. The plan will include a long-range vision for the campus that:
- Develops a vibrant center for health and wellness in the Mat-Su;
- Fosters growth of a community health-based campus;
- Considers long-range community health campus expansion, including mobility and parking needs, future health services, and complementary services; and
- Understands community needs and values.
